Positives - Close to the airport, clean, very quite and sunset view was great as it is on a hilltop. The airport shuttle driver came promptly right outside my door to pick me up early in the morning as per schedule. Food was good, large quantity and pretty much what was expected. Cannot beat the price for two large rooms that I had with plenty of bed sheets and towels. The staff was not friendly but they did what they were asked to and gave every answer that was asked of them with a straight face so no complaints there as I was not there to make friends. Negative - No Wi-Fi in room so you have to go to the main building, but for that price I did not mind. What I think should be done irrespective of the price is change the towels, they looked like they were more than 30 years old, very worn out, and a dirty brown color. I did not want to use them and this is something that is cheap to do so some white towels will help. The bathroom was also old and worn out tiles falling out so a remodel is surely needed. Bottom line _ I would not stay there for a leisure holiday to relax etc but would surely stay there for a night or two due to the price as it is so cheap, so If i plan to be out all day and just need a place to sleep I would stay there again.

The worst campsite I ever came across in Namibia. Basically camping at the parking lot with view of a cellphone tower for 300 N$ per night. Unfortunately there are no alternatives anymore, I rather sleep at the airports parking lot next time.

Basic but comfortable place to stay- food was nice and owners lovely. WiFi in bar/ reception area, I only stopped for one night but was fine for the price I paid and the shuttle service in to town and back was fantastic :)

I struggle to find the words to review this place. To get to the point: Rude, unfriendly and combatant manager. Staff who tries, but clearly has no hospitality training. A reflection of poor management. Breakfast in shambles, rooms not serviced. Thus if you require any towels (too few in our room for number of people booked), toilet paper, bins emptied, then go to restaurant and hope to get some help from there. Only good thing is location with nice views, but if you have alternate options, rather go for that. Good for backpackers-type establishment. Sorry to have to write such a review, but either this or just keep quiet.

Responded 24 Oct 2022
Good day sir, It is unfortunate that you have your experience like this at our establishment. It is fortunate that we are on the ball if it concerns the stay of our guests. Unfortunate is that sometimes things do not run as they are supposed to be, especially when some guests do not have the patience for us to reply to a complaint. We apologize for this inconvenience and your 'unexpected disappointment'. Kind regards,

An overnight stay so we could catch our early flight to Cape Town. Staff made a special effort to give us an early breakfast. Thank you. Rooms were clean and comfortable though noisy at night with trees scraping the roof and flapping shed doors! Food and service was good.

Fantastic service. Comfortable beds so close to the airport. Hilde was extremely helpful in helping me find a place to get my PCR Covid tests done while we were in Etosha. The food is also fantastic at Trans Kalahari we had the ribs and couldn't get enough! Will definitely be back!

Utilitarian rooms fairly close to the airport. This worked very well for us as we flew in one evening and rented a car to drive out the next morning. Our room was clean and comfortable enough. The beds were very firm. They were flexible with our “late” arrival, a little after 9pm, and kept the kitchen open for us so we were able to get dinner. There did not appear to be any food options nearby so we were thankful for this. The food for both dinner and breakfast was good. The shuttle from the airport worked well.

This hotel has an excellent location on a small hill, providing you with a nice view from their terrace and the pool, and close to the Airport. Their nice spacy rooms are great to sleep-off your jet-lag before you take the steering wheel. You don't have to go out for a meal since they serve nice food & drinks. Hildegard, the manager, provides you with all information needed and after taking their sumptuous breakfast you are ready to go!
